We cover the gap

Using your private health insurance when you are admitted to Ballarat Health Services means that you'll benefit from lower costs for medical care. That's because we cover the gap between the amount your private health insurance pays and what the costs actually are*.

We take care of all the paperwork and details for you. We'll get you into hospital with a minimum of hassle, so you can focus on your recovery: it's just one more reason why Ballarat Health Services should be your first choice in Healthcare.


*Exclusions to "No out of pocket expenses". Please note that there may be private patients who need an MRI. This equipment is not owned and operated by Ballarat Health Services; this means that there will be an added expense if an MRI is required. A small pharmacy fee is paid by all patients for discharge medication.
